Eamonn has over 15 years of experience in retained executive search and has executed 100’s of successful search projects over the course of his time at SPMB. Joining the firm as an analyst in 2003, he worked his way up from research, was promoted into recruiting and subsequently into project management, consistently delivering great results for clients.
Over the course of his career, Eamonn has built meaningful relationships in the candidate community across the enterprise world with an exceptionally deep network in DevOps, infrastructure and enterprise SaaS. He has successfully completed executive level searches across the management suite but spends most of his time focused on GTM projects and drives much of SPMB’s CMO/Marketing search work across both public and private companies.
His clients include high profile IPO’s like Okta, Smartsheet and Nutanix as well as high growth private companies like Confluent, KeepTruckin, Redis Labs and MapBox, to name a few. If you haven’t heard of any of them, check them out! He also works closely with a select group of world-class established technology companies including MSFT, Cisco, and Capital One.
Eamonn is equally comfortable working with Series A companies as he is working with established public companies. He is one of the key architects of SPMB’s explosive growth over the course of his tenure, having personally recruited and mentored a significant portion of SPMB’s ever growing team and built many of the best practices that have enabled SPMB to become the #1 retained search firm for the technology industry.
Eamonn graduated from Georgetown University with a B.S. in Business Administration and a Minor in Theology. He is a proud dad, an avid endurance athlete and a self-proclaimed expert in American Literature, burritos and anything Mount Tam related.
What is the most non traditional job you’ve ever had:
In 2001, after I graduated from college, I spent a year traveling around the world, working odd jobs everywhere I went. I had a number of “great” jobs, ranging from handyman to janitor, but the best job I had was as a butler at a famous castle in far northern Scotland called Skibo Castle. Skibo Castle was an hour north of the last stop light in Scotland and I worked in a traditional Scottish kilt waiting tables and mixing Pimm’s Cup’s, until the last guest decided they wanted to go to bed.
What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Learning to race road bikes. I have tried all sorts of long-distance endurance sports from triathlon to long-distance mountain bike racing and marathon running. Nothing compares to road racing in terms of pure suffering. I’m completely hooked!
What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I am an avid reader, have read nearly all of the hundred greatest books of the 20th century. I have also never thrown away a book in my life and have a massive personal library.
